PSI still reports that Novell iPrint needs an update after i updated to 5.9.0.
Maybe its being wrongly matched? 5.9.0 vs 5.90?

Hello.
Could it be as follows ?
Some programs leave behind the older version when updating to a new one. Some vendors do this deliberatively by policy, and some vendors by mistake. An example of a vendor deliberatively leaving behind the old version is Google, who do not remove old versions when installing updates for Google Chrome. This is an intentional policy on Google's behalf, and is done to prevent developers using Chrome from losing any of their work.

Are you sure psi is not still detecting the older/previous version ?
